Features, Office Screenshots of Office 12 have been published. You'll be amazed (for better or worse, your call). "As you can see, Microsoft is trying to do away with the 'legacy' menu bar. In newer Vista builds the menu bar is turned off by default (although it can be reactivated temporarily by pressing alt). In Office 12, the menus have been replaced with tab-like buttons. The only 'legacy' menu item that remains is the file menu, but it has completely been redesigned. The file menu now looks like the Windows XP start menu and can be customized as well." You can find more information and shots on Microsoft's website.

Obviously I cannot judge until I have used it,

but to me it looks like a nice interface that will take longer to load and use effectivly... Its turning word into a wysiwig program instead of a word processor, I would not be suprised if it started to handle images in the same way as Pages does (Pages is Apple's WP)
